June - Who or what is RWA? What do you think of critique groups? Do they really help new writers?

July - How does a writer work through the process of character development to make flat characters into well rounded, believable people?

August - I’ve written a couple of romantic short stories. My friends say I might be able to get them electronically-published in an anthology. How do you go about querying an E publisher? Is it different for stories than for a novel?

September - I just got a form rejection letter back from a publisher. It made me want to cry, so I shredded it up and threw it away. A friend says I shouldn’t have done that. He says writers should keep every rejection they get. Why would I want to? They’re painful to look at!
